Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has revealed that he would not have lasted the way he did at the Anfield before his exit from the club because there was an attempt by former manager Rafa Benitz to sell him to Chelsea.

It is a known fact that Gerrard had about 17 years spell with the Reds where he scored 186 goals across all competitions in 700 appearances to make him worthy to be called the club’s legend.

The now Rangers manager will never be forgotten for all his feats within the 17 years and most importantly one of the biggest comebacks in the history of the world football where he helped his side win the Champions League in 2005.

Despite that, Gerrard revealed that he had a burst up with the former manager which almost led to his exit until he had a change of mind to extend his stay with a long-term contract deal.

He added that he was pressured by the Rafa Benitez and that made him think of so many things, stating that he had given his life to the club but playing under a manager that did not like him for reasons unknown.

However, Gerrard retired as the most loved player in the club’s history and will never be forgotten.
